don’t think I’ve ever been more confused about a
snack’s package before in my life. Sure I’ve had
a few package where I couldn’t understand the language
written on the package at all, but this is different. This package
is supposed to be in English, yet it makes no sense to me at
all. When you look at this package you see several things that
you assume will be a part of the snack. The dynamite in the
word “Dinamita” and the explosion in the background
makes one assume that these might be spicy. It either failed
in this department completely, or I’m getting very tolerant
of hot foods. Then there’s what appears to be cashews
flying out of the explosion, I wasn’t really sure how
they would incorporate cashews into these rolled up Doritos,
and apparently neither were they, because they didn’t.
There is nothing cashew in these chips at all. The last thing
that confused me was some of the wording on the package, I have
no idea what “Dinamita” or “Mojo” means
in the context of these snacks.
Two other problems
I had with this package came from the words “limited time
only” and “they’re rolled to explode with
flavours”. First of all this isn’t the first time
Doritos has made a rolled corn chip, so maybe the flavour is
limited but this gimmick is not. The problem I had with “they’re
rolled to explode with flavours” comes from the fact that
the shape of these chips does not improve the flavour at all.
The thing that will
surprise you most is the flip flop I’m about to take on
this snack, and that’s because I really liked them. I
thought the citrus flavour was really great. It was sour and
flavourful, and balanced perfectly with the corn chips. The
texture is where these really shine, while the rolled shape
adds nothing to the flavour, I think it adds a lot to the texture.
I would even go so far as to say I like them more than the standard
Dorito texture wise. All around I would say that this is a solid
snack, and well worth trying. I just think the folks at Doritos
have to work out their marketing a bit.
